A possible Takashi Murakami x OVO collaboration is in the pipeline, as the famed Japanese artist has taken to Instagram to share a teaser image. The photo arrives with the caption, “I love this!!! @champagnepapi I am so glad that we are able to become friends even though we are across the world!! Thank you!!!”

As you can see, the image showcases Murakami’s signature flower placed atop the body of OVO’s famed owl. In further fueling the fire surrounding a collab, @ovoniko also shared a post of the same image.
